Is indoor air more polluted than outdoor air generally?

    Generally, yes. This is because outdoor air is allowed to “breathe” and indoor air is confined. Indoor air is polluted by VOCs (Volatile organic compounds) from furniture finishes, paint, air fresheners, scented cleaners, candles, incense, etc. It is also polluted by dust, bacteria, and allergens. You can improve indoor air by: opening windows, using low VOC paint, airing out new furniture and bedding in garage before bringing it into house, getting rid of carpet, not using air fresheners (they add chemicals to air), and having furniture stained with natural low VOC finishes.
